He definitely has the potential to be, especially playing in a significantly weaker division, he will have Barry back next year hopefully which should provide some run support. He also doesn't carry half the injury risk that blister boy does.
Jeremy Hermida - .280, 18 HR, 75 RBI, 75 R, 15 SB
Matt Cain - 4.25 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 150 K, 9 W
Francisco Liriano - 4.50 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, 100 K, 5 W (I have doubts about him keeping his job)
Scott Baker - 4.00 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 125 K, 10 W

At this point, I think Liriano has a far better chance of succeeding next year than Cain because he doesn't walk nearly as many people... Cain's walk rate was ridiculous this past year, and that will kill you.
